Contemporary and classic jazz, hip-hop, R&B, Chicago house, neo-soul—to Marquis Hill they’re all branches of the same fertile tree of African-American creative expression. A startlingly gifted trumpeter with a soulful, highly textured tone, the Downbeat Rising Star Award winner’s sound is a tour through jazz-trumpet history, evoking the high-drama stillness and space of Miles, the virtuosity of Freddie Hubbard, and the groove-savvy phrasing of Donald Byrd, while remaining unmistakably Marquis. His long running Blacktet “crystallizes the hard-hitting, hard-swinging spirit of Chicago jazz” (Chicago Tribune) with Joel Ross vibraphone/piano, Jeremiah Hunt bass, and Joe Dyson drums.
